A Really Pink Saturday....

So...yesterday morning Hubby went to work at his usual 2.30. He only works 5 minutes or so away so likes to have a coffee before he starts switching machine blades at 3am. I poured myself a coffee and went back to bed with a book as normal. An hour later I heard the front door opening.. and hubby shouted "Its only me..stay there and I will see you in a minute". I was worried that he wasnt feeling well..or perhaps his injured finger was so infected he couldnt work. A few minutes later he came into the bedroom carrying a plate... and he was talking to my daughter.. who is 5000 miles away in the Uk.. on camera on the mobile phone. On the plate were two cupcakes...one pink ..one blue. 
He said..."this is from your daughter and son in law... the first gifts of many".. and handed me a card. I opened it ...and burst into tears. For a few minutes I was so choked up.. I honestly couldnt speak. Then Hubby handed me three little hats... 
If you havent guessed already...Its the day Ive been waiting for. My new grand baby is a GIRL!! And I couldnt be happier. Now I have one of each. Miss C told me her scan wasnt until next week. They cooked up this plan between them to surprise me...and it worked perfectly. They filmed my reaction too... Buggers, They could at least have given me a chance to do my hair.... or should I say hairs
I couldnt resist and went out as soon as the shops opened and bought a couple of things. But a bigger shopping spree is planned to buy all things pink and frilly. I will be sending quite a big parcel to the UK.
Im a very happy Nana.  And Baby Girl.... I will be right there to welcome you into the world

Love and Hugs
